FDNY Disqualified Combat Veterans, Lawsuit Claims, While Hiring Son of Convicted Terrorist

A lawsuit filed in September alleges that the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) actively discriminated against U.S. military combat veterans based on stereotypes of PTSD. Simultaneously, the FDNY hired the son of a convicted terrorist who had publicly defended his terrorist leader father.

    And you just know there’s some blonde bimbo “human resources professional” behind this travesty.

    Kathy Shaidle is right when she says that women shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

        It’s funny.
        When I first heard K say that I said “that’s ridiculous” but after a while I warmed up to the idea.
        Darndest thing.
        That, and a few other severely-deep and existentially traumatizing truisms like “they really do hate you and they really do want to see you dead”.
        I was raised very naively and stuff like that, until I was about 40, was just not within my realm of comprehension, simply because I didn’t want anyone dead for what they believed, so how could anyone want me dead for my political views?
        Well guess what!?
        There are a few others that I initially dismissed as hyperbole, but after a little while I said “damn, that really TRUE!”
        Kathy really needs to put together a collection of her best missives, quips, and witticisms, like Mao’s little red book. Maybe give a brief etymology, how she first developed the theory in question, and then examples of it in the wild.
        Wow, I have rambled.

          no jokes about it being a short read?

            I’d hope it would be 500 pages, if only because I like reading her work.
            I think she could do an easy 25 pages on just that one phrase.

        Good intelligent discussion, on this thread, concerning NYC discrimination against U.S. war vets. War veterans would be proud of us.

      certainly should be banned from any HR department, I have seen too many travesties that have ended up costing the companies big bucks.

    You have to read the article to see how bad this is. There’s something rotting in the FDNY. Somebody, or several people, need to get fired and investigated for criminal negligence or treason.
